The Four Elements (1966)

An educational film about power sources that’s rendered as a lyrical meditation on heat and vapor, The Four Elements is a poetic and avant-garde documentary Curtis Harrington made for the United States Information Agency.


I've been going through the shorts that ranked in the ICM forum's "experimental/avant-garde" poll…this is one that really doesn't belong. Just an industrial film about mining coal, generating electricity and manufacturing thread. Ho hum.
